6 Ways To Update Your Home For Autumn

Wednesday 19.09.2018 

Refresh Your Home For The New Season

Snuggle up and welcome the new season! As we make the move from outdoor living and once again embrace our inside living and dining spaces, making the most of seasonal foods which bring warmth and cosiness like homemade soups and comforting stews. Refresh your space to reflect the change in weather and the lower light levels with clever use of texture and ambient light, to create an ultra welcoming space in which to spend intimate evenings with your loved ones.   

Cosy Autumn Textures

Cosy Autumn Textures

Stacks of luxurious scatter cushions can instantly update your space. Go all-out decadent with piles of tactile wool and feather cushions, or choose rustic linen and slubby cotton to keep the space calm and relaxed. Throws are a must at the time of this year when we're still in that 'shall we turn the heating on' stage! Ideal to shrug around your shoulders for a cosy movie night or keep your toes toasty warm whilst you binge that box set.   

Cosy Autumn Textures for your Autumn Living Room

Ambient Autumnal Lighting

The lower light levels in particular after the clock change requires some unique lighting in the home to make sure you're channelling those cosy vibes. Swap cold light bulbs for warm light - and enjoy those lovely tones which will instantly make your space feel like somewhere you want to spend some time. The warmer light will also pick out the natural textures in your home such as stone fireplaces, flagstone floors and wood detailing. Bring in some accent lighting to illuminate any dim corners and make the space feel bigger.

Rustic Cocktail Cabinet

Make A Head Start On The Home Bar

Start stocking that drinks cabinet up now ready for the party season kick off. Take some time to source independent and local suppliers to give your cocktails a talking point - with the resurgence in Gin popularity over the past few years you can pick up some really quirky handcrafted tipples which celebrate all things botanical.  And make sure you have plenty of glasses for different drinks - small glasses for those warming liqueurs, tumblers for that all-important Gin And Tonic along with wine glasses and tulips for fizz! Don't forget the drivers amongst your guests - some artisan cordials make a welcome change from the norm. The Bayliss Cabinet has stacks of room for glassware and bottles alongside plenty of surface space for mixing and muddling. 

Cosy Dining Settings

Make The Move From Al Fresco Dining 

As we make the move from Al Fresco dining our indoor dining area becomes the main focus for family meals and get-togethers. Create a versatile space with an industrial style dining table paired with upholstered chairs to make those lazy weekend lunches super comfy and relaxed. Earthy tones such as mustard and clay compliment the weathered timber and soften the industrial aesthetic, making the space more homely. 

Vintage Style Display Cabint

Create Cosy Corners

Mix and match vintage and new finds to create a cosy corner packed with visual interest. As night falls flick on those ambient lights to illuminate glassware and create dancing shadow and silhouette. The Collector's Display Console can be used a media console or display cabinet with stacks of room to display all of your trinkets and treasures.

So embrace the new season as an opportunity to update your home and bring the family together in a cosy and welcoming space.
